This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is Mixed Media. As soon as I saw this Challenge I decided I wanted to put together a Canvas that will sit on an Easel, on my Craft desk.
The term “ mixed media” is quite broad and covers many types of arts and crafts. It can include collages, 3D elements, altered objects like books, boxes or tags. You can use pretty much anything when putting together a Mixed Media art work or card. Paints, paper, buttons, fabric, photos, brads, ribbons, chip board, inks, air dried clay and the list goes on.
I found an old canvas that I had lying around, and painted over whatever was on it, with some white paint. Then started to add all the different layers.
Embossing paste to create a bit of rustic texture, Stamped images and sponged ink, splatters of ink here and there, a bit of Vegas Gold Shimmer paint, DSP, Brusho’s, Wooden embellishments, die cuts of Sun Flowers and leaves, a metal brad, braided linen trim and punched Daisies.
While I was making the canvas, I also decided to make a similar card.
